Jose Mourinho responded to Glenn Hoddle after describing Spurs as “diabolical” after their disastrous exit from the European League at the hands of Dynamo Zagreb.
Tottenham’s week began with the North London Derby defeat to Arsenal and things got worse after a wonderful hat-trick by Meslav Ursic ended at the start of the second half of extra time, giving the Croatian team a 3-2 win on aggregate. On the Premier League club.
Tottenham’s only hope is to end their 13-year wait for the trophy in the Carabao Cup, as they face Manchester City in the final in April.
Former Tottenham manager Hoddle attacked Lillywhites after the match, saying, “It was a disastrous performance, a disastrous result for the club. Tottenham was demonic. Mentally, they got it wrong with the game.”
Hoddle’s comments were placed on Mourinho in his post-match interview.
No. Mr. Hoddle, of course, is a legend in the club and every word he says, sometimes negative, sometimes positive, must be respected.
“But I don’t need Mister Hoddle’s words to feel hurt and as I said, more than sadness. Sadness is not enough.
“I totally respect whatever someone connected or unconnected with the club says about us tonight.
“I think we should accept. The problem would be if some accepted in a positive way in the sense of being hurt and ashamed of the critics.”
“Another story is if you don’t feel it, if you don’t care, if you don’t read, that’s a much deeper problem.
“But I repeat, I do not need outside critics because I am deeply hurt by what happened with my team.”
